We're now less than a month out from 'Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker' and what is likely to be the last movie in the franchise you'll see in cinemas for some time.

As ever, JJ Abrams is keeping a tight lid on story details and what to expect from the movie, but two new TV spots went online this weekend and give us a glimpse at two character groups that have been hinted at for some time - the Knights of Ren and the Sith Troopers.

The Knights of Ren were that group of masked baddies that Kylo Ren hung around with in the visions sequence of 'The Force Awakens', while the Sith Troopers were only just introduced for 'The Rise of Skywalker'.

As of yet, nobody knows what the deal is with either characters and even the spin-off novels, comics and TV shows haven't gone into them. Not only that, you only catch a brief glimpse of them in both TV spots, but they're definitely in there to spark people's attention.

'Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker' arrives in Irish cinemas on December 19th. Until then, these TV spots will tide you over.
